Troutman – Dancing with Developers

Giving Chicago Alderman life and death power over development in their wards has led to many an indictment.

The most recent to succumb to temptation seems to be just defeated Alderwoman Arenda Troutman.

U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald was kind enough to allow her to be arrested before the election. Now, he has charged her with 13 more crimes.

It sounds like a good ol’ Chicago Democratic Party shake-down.

The same dance we have seen before, except this time a female is taking the lead.

Or, perhaps Troutman had a better analogy when she said,

“Well, the thing is, most alderman, most politicians are hos.”

Who says we need a federal Equal Rights Amendment?

So, why isn’t some Republican making a big deal about this?
